Thai Airways revamped its headquarter and opened an airplane-themed popup restaurant, so those who are missing the in-flight dining experience can get their fix.

Since Thailand banned flights back in April due to the coronavirus pandemic, the fleet and its staff has been pinned to the ground, which is devastating for the commercial travel industry. Trying to recoup some of the lost revenue lead up to the opening of this unique restaurant on 3 September.
The headquarters office canteen was transformed to imitate the inside of the airplane, by replacing chairs with airplane seats and putting tables made from old plane engine parts in place. They even put a boarding stair at the entrance to make the experience even more realistic, where upon arrival, the cabin crew welcomes the guests.

Breakfast is available from 7 AM and they start to serve the main international menu at 9 AM, that includes Caesar Salad, Japanese yakisoba, and shwarma kebabs amongst other Thai dishes.
The restaurant serves about 2000 meals a day which cost between $3 and $5.
